The authorised biography of Steve Jobs has become Amazon US’ best-selling book of 2011 in spite of the fact it was only released on 24 October.
MacRumors reports that the book rose to No 13 quickly after its release in late October and became the second best-selling book of 2011 by mid-November.
The biography’s release date was pushed forward after Jobs died on 5 October. It covers the life of Jobs, drawing material from interviews with Jobs himself and more than 100 of his family members, friends, colleagues and business rivals.
A movie based on the biography is in the works, with Aaron Sorkin, screenwriter of The Social Network, said to be considering the project.
